Thank you for the pics!

The archduchess is always referred to as Maria though, never Maria Paloma.

Yes, thanks for the correction. Maria Paloma is how she's more well-known in Spain, though.

Another couple of photos, from DPA:

Hi, Claudia!
After getting married at “La Toledana” (Princess Maria Paloma family’s estate in Ciudad Real, Spain), the couple lived in Weiler (Austria) for five years and afterwards they moved to Vaduz (Liechtenstein), where they're still living.
Simeon and Paloma have four children: Johannes (born on October 29th 1997), Ludwig (born on November 16th 1998), Isabel (September 14th 2000) and Carlota (born in 2003).

I agree. I think Victoria is the most beautiful of the sisters.

Is Maria related to the Infante don Carlos?:o

Aren't the Princes/Princess of Bourbon-Two Sicilies HRHs? Why do they curtsy to the Princess' of Spain? Aren't they equals?

She's his daughter.

Yes, they are HRHs and 'equals' to the Infantas in terms of rank and style. Why the curtsey to Cristina? Just guessing here, but possibly to show respect and deference to the senior line of the Bourbons, and to an Infanta of Spain. Not necessary and not required by protocol, but a family thing (Maria's father Don Carlos, Duke of Calabria, was granted the title of Infant of Spain by King Juan Carlos in 1994, a very rare and high honour indeed).

They are all very look alike, I think... Interesting the fact that they all used the same veil (Cristina and Maria also the same tiara)
